Driver license testing site to be relocated



After more than a year of planning, the Alabama State Troopers Office has announced the Blount County driver license testing office will be relocated to the Family Services Mall at 1000 Lincoln Avenue effective Feb. 25.

According to county administrator John Bullard, all examinations and road testing will be conducted at the new location. License renewal locations will not change and will continue to take place at the courthouse and Hayden annex.

The new office site has been totally renovated and will offer more convenient parking. Signage will be in place to direct everyone to the correct office.

Bullard said the Blount County office will be closed Friday, Feb. 22, in order to make the transition. Anyone needing to test that day will need to go to an adjoining county.
